We stayed in monterey for one night and the only available room we found was in motel 6. It was very clean and spacious, close to the centre and the only drawback was its price. It was too expensive (nearly 130 dollars per night). Also wifi wasn't free but you have to pay it extra (2.99 dollars). Also it is... More

We were hired to move a person from San Diego to Carmel, So the person kindly booked us a room at this Motel 6 Downtown. It was close enough for getting food and some needed rest after a grueling drive up from San Diego. The rooms and showers were clean and everything worked.

We don't stay in budget motels and only stayed here because the couple we were traveling with made the reservation. The positive - the room was clean, the bed comfortable and conveniently located near Hiway 101 and the downtown area. The room decor was Spartan at best and had an institutional ambiance. It was a rainy day and after bringing... More

Nice clean room, close to downtown, like a 20 minute walk. Went to Safe Night in downtown Monterey. Listened to all kinds of music. Getting back on the freeway was a snap .Hotel was easy to locate and has a park across the street.
